Las Vegas Strip shooter Stephen Paddock had anti-anxiety medication in his system, autopsy records obtained Friday by the Review-Journal show. The autopsy report also confirms Paddock died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head. Clark County Coroner John Fudenberg said in December that the 64-year-old Paddock, a high-rolling video poker player, committed suicide. He shot himself as officers closed in on his hotel room after he stopped firing at the Route 91 country music festival across the street from the Mandalay Bay. The Review-Journal reported several days after the mass shooting that a local doctor had prescribed the anti-anxiety drug diazepam, known by the brand name Valium, for Stephen Paddock back in June. After Paddock’s body was cremated, Fudenberg last month released the remains to his younger brother Eric Paddock, who lives in Orlando, Florida. Eric Paddock flew to Las Vegas to pick up the ashes after he was unable to get the coroner’s office to send him the remains. He told the Review-Journal that he does not intend to keep his brother’s ashes at his home in Orlando.
